Since his parents are musicians, Ethan was exposed to guitar and vocals from the moment he was born. After telling his mom that he wanted to "sing like Steve Perry and play guitar like Eddie Van Halen," Ethan began formal guitar lessons, singing and performing at 7 years old.
His early passion for music was nurtured by instructors such as Benjamin Ryan Williams, bassist for the Indigo Girls; Heber Pampillon, guitarist for Kickin' Valentina; and Greg Lee, bassist for Yacht Rock. At the age of 12, Ethan began teaching himself at home. Inspired by the music of the Goo Goo Dolls, John Mayer, U2, Van Halen and Stevie Ray Vaughan, he has developed a diverse playing style that he is constantly working to perfect. When not in school, you will rarely see him without a guitar in his hands.
Over the years, Ethan has performed at Variety Playhouse, Smith's Olde Bar, Vinyl, the Masquerade, the 10 High and many other venues in the Atlanta area.
